Randy Scheunemann, McCain's foreign policy adviser, called the idea of a split between the two campaigns "laughable."
"It's hard to believe these people worked for John McCain. They obviously have no loyalty to John McCain and no loyalty to his running mate," said Scheunemann, who prepared Palin for the vice presidential debae.
"I've worked in Washington for over 20 years. I have seen literally dozens of politicians, and Sarah Palin is as smart, tough and focused as any politician I've ever seen. I'm proud of the time I was able to spend with her," he said.
Apparently Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, Larry King and others are dying to talk with Gov. Palin. No wonder. She not only has heart, brains and charisma, but Reagan’s ability to connect with the common man and Lincoln’s ability to put deep thoughts into few words. Like this:
It was Mother Theresa, she had once said that God has created each one of us, every human being, for a greater thing to love and to be loved and no matter our party, or our gender, or our background, our affiliations, there is a voice of humanity there, in those words of Mother Theresa, that speaks to all of us. Because every child does have something to contribute to this world if we give them a chance. And every child is beautiful before God and dear to him for their own sake. These children are not a problem. They are a priority. And I think that we are about ready to show them the good heart of America. John and I have a vision of America where innocent life counts and every child has a chance to contribute. Where every child is cherished, and it is that spirit that I want to bring to Washington.

If you would like to send Sarah Palin thanks or encouragement, Michelle Malkin has set up a petition where you can write a message to Gov. Palin.
As for this piece by the AP, either they finally scrounged up a reporter with a smidgen of integrity or the Martians have invaded and started by taking over the AP. If it is the Martians, too bad they didn’t guess that somewhat unbiased reporting would be a dead giveaway.
